Green Project Lab for young people – Development of and funding for green Solidarity Projects Erasmus+
9-12 December 2021 | Online, Germany
Solidarity Projects are part of the funding programme “European Solidarity Corps” from the European Union. Young people get the chance to take action for positive changes within their local community. In this project lab we will focus on climate challenges and how young people can address them locally with their own project ideas and thus contribute to a better environment.
Contents of the project lab:
Do you and your friends want to get active in climate protection and start a project in your neighbourhood or city? With an EU-funded solidarity project you receive 500 € per month to realize your project! Maybe you already have a vague idea for a project, or you just want to do something to protect our planet but don’t know how to get started? This Project lab gives you the space and support to develop your idea into a concrete project.
With this project lab you get the chance to:
- connect & exchange with young people with similar interests from all over Europe
- deepen your understanding about ecological challenges (with external experts and resources)
- learn about project management (such as setting aims, communication, finances)
- get to know sustainable practices for everyday life and for projects
- receive details on the application procedure in the European Solidarity Corps programme
- get inspiration and support to start a project
After completion of the course all participants receive a Youthpass as a certificate of participation.
Participation in this project lab is open to young people aged 18-30 years legally residing in one of the following countries:
- Member States of the European Union
